What's A Croughnut?

I've been hearing a lot of good things about cronuts, croughnuts, or whatever its spelling are but it was only last week that I got to try one. I mean, I'm not really that fond of doughnuts and croissant so I didn't rush to the bakeshop like everybody else. But thanks to Ola for introducing me and daughter to Le Coeur de France' croughnut even if I'm craving for ramen that time we went to Shang Plaza. And because she's like my elder sister (and you know how an elder sister is), she got to choose where to eat. :P



Parmesan Croughnut. There are three flavors available but we all ordered this. Happy to say that this is not that sweet and I like the parmesan cheese, and it is baked so its not oily. But its chewy so I don't know what happened to the croissant part of this hybrid pastry. I really can't compare with the other famous and infamous cronuts because I'm a cake and chocolate person.

*** But who knows, and I'm not closing my door to cronuts so please feel free to send me some. ;)

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
